Lake Louise Sightseeing Gondola


Located in Banff National Park, the Lake Louise Sightseeing Lift, Gondola & Interpretive Centre offers a unique opportunity to dine in the beautiful Lodge of Ten Peaks, ascend to an awe-inspiring viewpoint, and to learn why we are the home of the grizzly bear.

Guests enjoy a relaxing 14 - minute ride, with the choice of a four passenger open chair or fully enclosed gondola, to an elevation of 2088 m / 6850 ft. Incredible views of the majestic Rocky Mountain, wildflowers, natural springs and maybe even some wildlife are highlights of the ride.

All lift and gondola visits begin with a pre-ride Visitor Welcome orientation. This brief presentation will ensure a safe and enjoyable visit, while enlightening guests about our unique surrounding here in Banff National Park.

The Best Grizzly Bear Viewing and Scenery in the Canadian Rockies!

Lake Louise is one of the best places on earth to see wild grizzly bears in their natural environment!

As the grass turns green and new berries begin to flourish, one of the most powerful creatures will begin to roam in search of food. The grassy slopes below the gondola offer lush, rich vegetation for these incredible creatures. Is it any wonder that each summer the grizzly returns? Each year bears emerge from hibernation and call these alpine meadows their home. The Lake Louise Sightseeing Lift, Gondola & Interpretive Centre is committed to providing a protected environment for bears, and an educational and safe opportunity for guests to experience the natural beauty and wonder of this magnificent place!
